Well, procrastination is a sin and John Wooden was quite right when he said, "Be quick but don't hurry."
I was given the opportunity to apply for a position that would have brought more responsibility and more money at times.
I allowed self doubt and crowding out of time to distract from completing it.
Consequently, those who found the time to complete the applications and let go of their fear of rejection were announced as having obtained the position.
Not coincidentally, they were men.
